the electoral map for 2012 is changing as a result of this year's census. a review shows some reliably red states, meaning republican states will gain house seats and therefore crucial electorate votes in the next presidential election. texas is the big winner adding four house seats. believe that? florida will pick up two. these are pretty republican states except florida went democrat this time. arizona, georgia, nevada, south carolina, utah and washington state would gain a seat. notice the northeast, midwest are all losing seats. look at that. the big losers, new york and ohio, likely to lose two seats a piece. illinois, iowa, louisiana, massachusetts, michigan, missouri, new jersey and pennsylvania, all lose one. evidence that as a country we're beginning to migrate south and west. it's all because of air-conditioning.
